Silver Oak Newsroom
Thank you for Coming to Bollywood Night 2019!
On Friday, November 15th, Silver Oak Elementary was transformed into a scene from a South Asian movie! Big posters of Bollywood stars greeted students, parents and staff as they walked on the "Red Carpet", welcoming them into the transformed multipurpose room.
The third annual Bollywood Night was a PTO sponsored free family event held on November 15th, 2019. It was wonderful to see the whole school community dance to the beats of Hindi music, take photos in the festive Bollywood photo booth, witness a Bollywood fashion show, enjoy delicious Indian pizza, samosas and pakoras, and get henna-inspired temporary tattoos.
The crafts corner sponsored by YOUNG ART LESSONS was one of the highlights for the young families as was the Henna Table for all of the older kids.

Special thanks to SUSAN KENNEDY for sponsoring San Jose Barracuda raffle tickets.
